    I've got that hairstyle!


    But having a trim tomorrow (hopefully!)



    Nice-looking motor. Yeah, lowering it would defo improve it, looks-wise. Also a non-standard grill wouldn't go amiss.
    Plus you must use Megs Enduro Gel on them tyres

    What alloys are those? Standards?
    I look the subtle, standard look of your SRi. It looks better than most modded-to-the-max cars imho.

    Looks alright. Not taking aything away from your efforts, but it is all too easy to get reflection on black, so don't get too happy. Clay the car, and use a decent wax such as Pete's 53, them compare it to those photo's and you'll be amazed. The car will look like a mirror.

    As I said, not knocking your efforts though
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    nah i totally understand your thoughts gaz. funds didnt really allow a better wax product this time, but i defiantely think i need a better one. after it rained while i was in work i have a few marks here and there where the water was sat on the car.

    ill take another pic and upload it in the moring then you can see the water marks im on about gaz. hopefully youll be able to tell me a decent wax to use.
    do you reckon that if i give it the full wash once a month, and give it a rinse and use a quick detailer spray once a week it would look after the paint well enough?
